Introducing exciting 18-year old singer, songwriter and musician WILL STOCKLE with his brand new single to kick off 2020 titled ‘How’d You Let Me Go’. Taken from his forthcoming sophomore EP titled On Mine, which is scheduled for release this autumn, ‘How’d You Let Me Go’ was written and produced by Will Stockle, and it comes on the back of his last single ‘We Don’t Care, amidst recent support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Latitude Festival.
Driven by a homemade authentic feel, lush indie, pop and soul music sensibilities, and honest and relatable songwriting, Will Stockle writes and produces infectious heartfelt music from out of his bedroom that will stay stuck in your head for days, and the artist and multi-instrumentalist comes recommended if you like the inventive and soulful vibe of Tom Misch, the honest songwriting style of Alessia Cara, or the pop soul sensibilities of Charlie Puth.
Considering his debutEP Burningonly came out last July as a demo, Will Stockle has only been releasing music for just over six months, but the 18-year old Essex native has already been garnering strong support from the likes of BBC Introducing, who supported his latest single ‘We Don’t Care’, and Latitude Festival, where he performed last year on the ‘Inbetweeners’ stage, showing signs of a bright and promising future for the exciting newcomer.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘How’d You Let Me Go’, Will Stockle says, “I wrote the song after looking through old photos of me and a friend that I no longer speak with. The song is about remembering an old relationship that you still feel emotive about; it captures that feeling of lack of closure. It talks about how even after all this time, we could still go back to how we were and try again, which a lot of people can relate to, I wrote it in an attempt to get the closure that I’ll probably never get”.
About how the song came together, Stockle adds that, “I wrote the chords and lyrics to the song with my guitar one evening when I was bored, then a few days later, I started putting it all together in my studio, but it didn’tsound quite right. It was only after a conversation with a course tutor about that ‘unique sound’, that I switched up the instrumentation, and then the song snapped into place, offering a more spacious and clean sound, while still keeping the feeling I originally intended all along”.
